KNITTING INSTRUCTIONS

We have our little swatch of pink and are ready to change colors. Instead of using the pink yarn we normally would that’s attached to the ball, we are going to bring it and introduce our new color, which is white.

To begin to change yarn colors, we’re simply just going to just make a little bit of a hook. Just like that. No tying, nothing difficult at all. Just a little hook right there that we are going to put over our knitting needle.

We are going to knit that white yarn color through and I like to keep these nice and taught and tense while I’m doing it.

Just knit through and there is that one new white yarn color. And we are no longer using the pink. We have a white tail and we just continue knitting all the way down the row with our new white yarn. How simple is that?

More Colors = More FUN!

So we are going to go all the way across the row, and then I want you to see that on the back there is a wrong side and a right side. And once we come around, we are just going to knit into that very first white stitch that we made and hold everything nice and tight.

We are now done with the pink so we can go ahead and just cut that off and we have a pink yarn tail and a white yarn tail.

I am not going to call the knitting police if you simply tie them together, however to be more professional, go ahead and weave in your ends. It’s totally your choice.
